I need help deciding...

Can you tell the difference between a .81 and .90? I wear size 5.5

I can''t decide between a .81, G, VVS2 OR

.90, H, VVS2

I''m debating on whether its worth it to spend the extra $ for the .90 or will I not notice the difference in size and just waste spending the extra money?

Thanks!

I think it''s a personal choice but I don''t think you''ll see much size difference

Assuming they are both well cut, yes, you can see the difference. Smaller differences are easier to see in stones up to around 1 carat.

If you want to save some money, you can easily go to VS2 for eyecleanliness, unless the higher clarity is a personal preference.

Does anyone have a picture wearing a .81-1 carat diamond on a 5-6 size finger.

There are many in the "under 1 carat rings" thread. Mine in my avatar is a .81 cushion and my size is 5.5
